A statement from Manchester United, quoted by The Athletic, read: “We are aware of images and allegations circulating on social media.
“We will not make any further comment until the facts have been established. Manchester United does not condone violence of any kind.”
Greenwood’s girlfriend Harriet Robson leaked images alleging the 20-year-old abused her. While that could still leave room for ambiguity, her audio tapes do prove that Mason threatened her with violence and forced himself on her.
Fans are livid as expected and certain reports have claimed that the Greater Manchester Police has been informed. An investigation is almost certain to happen.
This doesn’t bode well for Greenwood, who has also been in controversy for flouting Covid-19 rules to bring girls up to his room in Iceland.
